All my games don't really have manuals they have little inserts. As for digital games it's weird, I have a digital copy of Batman Arkham City that came free w/ my 360, and I never play it, not because it's a bad game, but because I forget I even own the game lol, I like the packaging, but I want like the old kind, like super nintendo or n64 XD I like lots of junk crammed into a little box.
Digital is crap. What happens when that game is pulled from the store for various reasons? Its just not obtainable anymore?
That's what I'm thinking as well. It would kind of be a rip off if they took off the game and you lost it due to that. I really like being able to get a hold of a physical copy of a game. Especially if it's one of those 3rd party games (the good ones that is) that aren't so common. Then, if they pull it, I'll still have the physical copy.
